Keeping your foundation and eye shadow from creasing during hot weather or throughout your wedding can be a challenge.

With the help of a few expert beauty tips, you can apply strategic dots of primer on your face to help your makeup stay put, look naturally flawless and remain crease-free.

Eyeshadow Primer – Your Makeup’s Make-it-Last Secret

Benefit’s Stay Don’t Stray eye primer makes any eyeshadow fade-resistant and budge-proof.

Need a long-wearing eyeshadow for a photo shoot or fashion show?

Prep the eye area with a primer to keep your matte and shimmery shadows in place from morning to evening.

The Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don’t Stray Stay-Put Primer for Concealers & Eye Shadows, light/medium ( $35.00) will prevent the shadow from creasing and allow the vibrantly-colored shadow to pop.  Also, keep moisturizer off lids to keep lids crease-proof.

Foundation Primer – Why It’s a Must Have

For all day hold – whether you use a cream, powder or liquid foundation—smooth on a few dots of foundation primer.

You’ll not only create a crease-free canvas for your foundation, but the primer will help hold the makeup in place.

After dotting your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead with foundation, blend with circular strokes using a cosmetic sponge.

Voila! You now have fabulous and flawless skin.

How to Apply Primer

After moisturizing face with a product made for your skin type, place four dots of Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Original 0.4 oz ($26.00) on your forehead, cheeks, and chin.

Then spread the foundation primer across your face.

To prep lips for shadows, apply a pea-sized amount of primer to the upper eye area with your fingertips. Gently blend the primer from the inner to the outer corner of the eye.

Wait a few minutes before applying eye shadow to lids with a brush.

Your Perfect Primer -Tips & Tools

  • To allow the makeup to seep into the folds of your skin evenly, use your fingertips to apply the foundation and eye shadow primer to your face and eyelids.
  • Next, deposit the eye shadow on your lids with an angled eye shadow brush.
  • If you use a concealer to hide dark circles or cover blemishes, apply your primer to skin first, then smooth on the light-reflecting concealer with an eye shadow brush.
  • Make sure you blend the cream well on the eyelid; you can use your fingertips for this and tidy up any mistakes with a cotton swab.
  • Another top makeup tip is to use good quality make-up brushes when applying eyeshadow as they’ll make it stay on longer.
  • Other types of primer to keep your makeup from creasing include MAC Shadesticks or Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion.
